I am practising and teaching Hitsuzendo (Zen-Calligraphy) in my Zen-Dojo in Muelheim/Germany.
Hitsuzendo is performed (usually after doing some Zazen) with a big Japanese brush, on the floor.
In Hitsuzendo we do not try to produce beautiful artwork. Our purpose is to achieve a direct expression of the ink trace on the paper. Good or bad, beautiful or ugly does not matter!
